Some important differences between villain's situation and what I talk about with open limping or limping behind in the book.
Villain only has 1 person to get to fold the blinds.
That person isn't a 50 vpip.
Hero has no ability to play in position.
The ideas in the book point to a situation like:
You're in the cutoff with 78s. The remaining three players are all loose preflop (like many home games, etc) and the button doesn't raise much preflop. Raising is still likely to take you multiway and you have little steal equity postflop.
That's the idea.
